Former Labor and Delivery Student Nurse Preceptorship at Good Samaritan Medical Center
about 1 year ago
The day starts with a good look at the board of patients. You want to know who is laboring and who has delivered, how far along they are in their labor and their pregnancy. Next you want to find out from your preceptor how you can best serve her and begin to plan out your tasks for the day (write out on a timeline what needs to be done and what time you plan to do it at). You will meet your clients for the day and perform their first assessment. The rest of the day depends on what stage of labor your clients are in. Always be available to jump in and help other nurses especially with triage of patients. Triage at Good Sam is a great place to get experience with placing women on the toco and monitors and caring for nervous parents and families.
